365 Days of Justice

365 Days of Justice

365 Days of Justice is a new, interactive fundraiser that we launched at the gala in April. The goal is to sell each day of the year while promoting Justice for Every One, Every Day. Donations range from $1 to $365 depending on which days of the year you select. Donors can celebrate a special event or a loved one by dedicating a day in their honor. The donor's name and the tribute will be displayed on our website. 

Here is how it works: go to www.raisingthebar.org/365daysofjustice. Choose a day that is meaningful to you or a loved one. It can be a birthday, anniversary, or special event, in honor of or in memory of someone special. Then, you can dedicate the day by personalizing your message. Finish with your donation by following the easy, secure online process. 

365 Days of Justice will be promoted and live on the LBF website throughout the year. Special thanks to the Louisiana State Bar Association for their sponsorship of 365 Days of Justice!! This generous donation is helping Louisiana Bar Foundation promote Justice for Every One, Every Day.
